Mantic Takes a Deep Look at the Elves in Armada

The newest fleet to hit the waves, the Elves bring new special rules and abilities to the game of Armada. But how does one build a force of them and what can opponents expect to see from their pointy-eared adversaries. Get a look in this deep dive (no pun intended) into them in this article.

Elf-Sight means that the Elf ships don’t suffer the -1 modifier for shooting at targets over 10” away, as well as impacting the modifiers for firing indirect weapons.
